Ben Macartney's 5-DAY SURF FORECAST

The surf heights forecasted for Gold Coast

The Coastalwatch 'Surf Forecast' refers to breaking wave heights in the surf zone that are forecasted for a region. Coastalwatch provides 14 regional surf forecast daily across Australia.
Because each is regional forecast, consider there may be variations between the wave heights predicted and what you can expect at your local surf due to variables. For example; orientation to the coast, ocean floor bathymetry, local weather and many other local idiosyncrasies may effect the swell and weather patterns causing differing wave heights. Always use this forecast as a guide - for more detail, please read the Swell Analysis.

  • Recap A steady building trend in Easterly tradewind swell throughout Friday levels off at solid 3 to 5ft levels along the most exposed open breaks throughout the weekend, while generating smaller, cleaner waves in the 2 to 4ft range along the points and inside the bays. Read more
